Today MJ has been playing with her favourite paper and stamp range, Heartfelt Creations using the Celebrate the Journey paper pad together with the coordinating dies and stamps.
The outside opening box idea was inspired by John Lockwood’s fancy box and the original post is HERE. The card was inspired by the very talented Nikki Payne who was at Dandie Crafts demoing recently. Thank you again Nikki.
So let’s show what MJ has done.
This project is; the box measures 5 1/2” x 5 1/2” and the card measures 5 1/4” x 5 1/4”.
Once the box structure was made she has used the pink tones of the 12” x 12” paper and layered top, bottom and sides after using Distress Ink around all edges. The inside of the box was lined with toning papers from the pad.
Now to see what’s inside the box…..ooo sounds like an old quiz game..lol
What a lovely surprise this will be for the recipient.
For the card MJ used the same pink toned papers for the front of card. She then used the coordinating stamps from the Celebrate the Journey range stamping with a Sepia coloured ink onto white card. The images were then coloured with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
MJ then used the matching dies to cut out the fob watch and greetings etc. Next she used the Luggage die set to make the suitcase (she loved that it was fun to make). The small tag was taken from the paper pad as was the ticket. The fun part was arranging it all on the front of the card.
For the front of the box MJ stamped the greeting and then used the luggage label die to cut it out.
